This is the florida moped law

Section 320.01(28), Florida Statutes: "Moped" means any vehicle with pedals to permit propulsion by human power, having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider and designed to travel on not more than three wheels, with a motor rated not in excess of 2 brake horsepower and not capable of propelling the vehicle at a speed greater than 30 miles per hour on level ground, and with a power-drive system that functions directly or automatically without clutching or shifting gears by the operator after the drive system is engaged. If an internal combustion engine is used, the displacement may not exceed 50 cubic centimete

Would this mean that our bikes maybe not moped because a clutch is necessary to ride it if you are going down hill and to start it going?

it says After the system is engaged, so i guess they are mopeds. I read that you need to register them for $19 at the tax collector office, but don't need insurance

You have to refer to "Definition of Terms" section on the DMV website to get a clearer picture of what's a moped and what's a motorized bicycle.
How's your legaleese?
